40 Easter Basket Ideas for Kids: Something for Every Bunny
Easter basket ideas for every mini at your Easter egg hunt – from green thumbs to flower girls and baby bunnies. We've rounded up Easter basket stuffers for newborns to teens.
1. A-Tisket, A-Tasket, Start With a Basket
The best Easter basket ideas start with the perfect vessel. Keep it classic with a traditional rattan basket from Olli Ella, personalized with a custom bow from Winn and William you can use year after year. For something a bit different Mustard Made's metal baskets in a slew of pretty pastels. If you'd like a cohesive look, add stuffers with an Easter motif like florals or bunnies, and use a color to tie things together, like yellows and creams for a baby chick basket. Here are our go-to ways to keep it fresh.
2. A Floral Easter Basket for the Budding Florist
Yes, you heard it here first- florals for spring. Aspiring florist will love floral Liberty Print Easter dresses, a DIY flower crown kit, and a daisy-inspired bag for some major flower power. With a Sun & Lace Toddler Scalloped Purse and a set of fairy wings, they'll be ready for a walk in the woods now that it's warming up, collecting spring blooms along the way.
3. An Easter Basket for Baby Bunnies
Snag sweet bloomers, bonnets, booties, and babies for the under-one set. Swap out a traditional woven Easter basket for a softer version in canvas – or use a baby blanket. We love gifts that match babies' age and stage, that just happened to feature a woodland bunny or baby chick, like a Wee Gallery's Meadow Activity Pad for tummy time or Pehr's Hatchlings print for newborns. The bunny ears on Bluberry Hill's Rattle are perfect for teething babies, while a rolling toy helps crawling babies have something to reach for as they explore.
4. A Garden Easter Basket for Green Thumbs
Get little buds warm weather-ready with a fresh set of gardening tools, friendly backyard bugs, lots of picnic-inspired gingham, and veggie-inspired gear in a woven wagon they can take for a spin.
5. An Easter Basket for Bigger Bunnies
Use the cheerful mascots of spring as the starting point for a classic Easter basket––from sunny bunny prints to silky carrots. Layer in stickers, and a Bunny Hop Mixer for aspiring chefs. Tucked it all into a vintage blue picnic basket.
6. An Easter Basket for Little Chicks
Little chicks and chickadees are a sweet way to celebrate. Pair egg sidealk chalk and baby chick pretend-play costumes with pale yellow Easter pajamas. Add jelly beans to classic easter eggs or try Little Miss Zoe's bracelet-making kit pacaked in a purple egg.
7. An Easter Basket for Sporty Kids
Warmer weather means kids are ready to head outside and its the perfect time to refresh your stash of bubbles, sidewalk chalk or sports equipment. Use bolder primary colors to create an Easter basket geared to older kids with pickleball gear, sporty watches, bunny blowling for competive kids paired with a short-sleeve pajama.
8. An Easter Basket for Tweens and Teens
Skip the jelly beans and go with a few pieces that feel just a little grown-up for the summer ahead. Think: simple studs, a journal paired with metallic pens, a floral hair comb, and a colorful puzzle.
